Headaches, Narcotic Pain Medications, and Disability

Qualifying for disability benefits based on headaches or other disorders that are so painful that narcotic medications are prescribed can be a major challenge.  Since there is no objective way to measure pain and because most migraine and cluster headaches are impossible to diagnose with objective testing such as MRI studies, disability insurers often resist paying benefit claims, especially if the benefit plan or policy requires the submission of "objective" medical evidence.  But there are methods to improve the chances of having claims paid.
